My car was in a commercial
« on: March 27, 2020, 08:21:48 AM »
My car was requested to be used  in a commercial for a business about 1 1/2 hours from me, up on southern Illinois.  Finally caught a day it wasn’t raining and we drove it up there.  They just sent me the finished commercial.

No.  He offered free oil changes, buy my wife and I lunch, pay for our gas... I didn't take him up on anything.  It was fun just to watch them shoot all the different takes.

What does he check the pressure on at 16sec in? One of those swivel hoists, drive in, drive out.

That was most likely just an effect for the commercial.  Probably just stuck the hose in there and it's not actually connected to anything.

Also, that's not even the same car that Mr. Insulin drove in there.  Nor is said car in the same bay as when it was driven in.
